Starter Battery

Took the dead starter battery of Reboot. A friend put it on his charger. After two days we declared it dead. Bought a new battery. Hooked it up. Nothing. Put meter on battery. Plenty of voltage. Noticed an extra wire I had no hooked up. Hooked it up. Wow, it works! Hehe….. Moral: You need all the wires….. Fair winds and following seas :)P.S. raining again today after raining all last night. Ugh

Sydney Harbor Racing

My friend Malcolm took me sailboat racing in Sydney Harbor. What a treat. Winds from 5 to 25 knots. And from every direction. I have never raced with so many other boats close by. Plus, the Friday night race courses of about 5 yacht clubs all converge and or cross. Thrown in the ferries for fun. What a head trip.Not to mention we provisionally came in first!Fair winds and following seas :)Roger sv Reboot +61 (0)476 768 335
